Secondhand Rose and a walk down Memory lane.
The lad christened his one piece leathers today with our trip to the Stafford show. He now realises that whilst they may be needed for his hill climb exploits next year they aren't all that practical for walking round in all day (particularly with Fox MX boots) and going to the loo. When we got home I dug out ... 19 Oct 2009 22:02

Yachting and stuff
Hi Thought you might like to know that I passed the Yacht Master theory OK. Next week I'm off on the North Sea in a 36 footer for a week with an examiner and crew.

The race ECU only works with the race loom (it plugs into the road one, but just doesn't work). The race loom doesn't have any connectors for lights, indicators, horn, etc.... 15 Oct 2009 06:11
